This is a beautiful Cathederal complex. Well worth a visit and worth climbing both the dome and the clock tower for great views over Florence.

Walk to top is a must. But be ready for some huffing and puffing! The outside is spectacular and worthy of a one hour slow walk around, just have a gelato too

So many amazing buildings in a small space! All well worth visiting. Dodge the crowds and the selfie stick sellers and soak up the atmosphere.

The pristine marble façade and graceful design will leave you speechless. If you were hoping to sit down while admiring the interior, almost all the seats are roped off.

Our family was here on February 2017, when is tourist low season. The place was crowded, but in a good way, the place has its own positive vibe.

It's amazing to see buildings that you've only seen on the telly before. I wish I'd had time to go inside but I was on a guided tour so had to go with the rest of the group. Never mind, I'm planning to return to Florence for a longer stay.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
